This Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement is a response to Section 54(1), Part 6 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and relates to actions and activities for the financial year ending 31 July 2021.
Greenhood Limited (‘the company’, ‘we’, ‘us’ or ‘our’) is committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking violations in its own operations, its supply chain, and its products. We have zero tolerance towards slavery and require our supply chain to comply with our values.
Greenhood Limited has business operations in the United Kingdom. We operate in the healthcare sector, and the nature of our supply chains is as follows:
We work with key direct suppliers in digital healthcare and medical staffing, who provide us with services such as healthcare and hospital training services.
For more information about the company, please visit our website: http://www.greenhoodltd.com/.
As part of our efforts to monitor and reduce the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our supply chains, we have adopted the following due diligence procedures:
- Internal supplier audits.
- External supplier audits.
- Checking certain suppliers with external third parties for any slavery or human trafficking risks.
Our due diligence procedures aim to:
- Identify and action potential risks in our business and supply chains.
- Monitor potential risks in our business and supply chains
- Reduce the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our business and supply chains.
Risk and Compliance
The company has evaluated the nature and extent of its exposure to the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in its UK supply chain through:
- Evaluating the slavery and human trafficking risks of each new supplier.
- Creating an annual risk profile for key suppliers.
- Review on a regular basis all aspects of the supply chain based on supply chain mapping.
We do not consider that we operate in a high-risk environment because the majority of our supply chain is based in the UK and in low-risk industries. We do not tolerate slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains. Where there is evidence of failure to comply with our procedures by any of our suppliers, we will require that supplier to remedy the non-compliance.
The company uses key performance indicators (KPIs) to measure its effectiveness and ensure that slavery and human trafficking are not taking place in its business and supply chains. These KPIs are as follows:
- We will contact suppliers to enquire about their modern slavery practices every 12 months.
- We will train our staff about modern slavery issues and increase awareness within the company.
- We will carry out a regular audit of suppliers–100% of suppliers each year.
Training Our Staff
The company requires its staff to complete training and ongoing refresher courses on slavery and human trafficking. The company’s training covers:
- How to identify the signs of slavery and human trafficking.
- What initial steps should be taken if slavery or human trafficking is suspected?
- How to escalate potential slavery or human trafficking issues to the relevant parties within the company.
- What external help is available.
- What steps the company should take if suppliers in its supply chain do not implement anti-slavery policies in high-risk scenarios, including their removal from the company’s supply chain.
In the next financial year, we intend to take the following steps to tackle slavery and human trafficking by:
- Ensuring adequate risk assessment and management processes are in place to tackle modern slavery.
- Providing adequate training to tackle modern slavery and trafficking.
- Evaluating key performance indicators to measure the effectiveness of policies taken to tackle modern slavery.
- Delivering an awareness campaign to tackle modern slavery and trafficking
